Sunday Post (33)


Book Review: Beach House for Rent by Mary Alice Monroe 
Waiting on Wednesday: More Than We Can Tell
Book Review and Giveaway: It's Always the Husband by Michele Campbell





I will be sharing my thoughts on the historical novel, The Scribe of Siena, which has time travel and a really vivid setting of Medeival Siena, Italy.  If you like historical reads that are smart, you'll definitely want to check out my review.  I will also be sharing my favorite books of 2017 so far as well as my thoughts on Adriana Trigiani's latest delightful novel, Kiss Carlo.

Dinosaur Trouble by Dick King-Smith

  1. The Scribe of Siena sounds interesting. We have a copy at my library. I will be looking for your review to find out more about it! I am also curious about Kiss Carlo. I loved The Shoemaker's Wife but thought Big Stone Gap was just okay. I am hoping that Kiss Carlo will be like her other historical novel.

    I forgot to add my new books to my post this week but I finally got a copy of Once and For All from the library. Hopefully I'll get to read it this week!

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. I didn't enjoy Big Stone Gap either, Christina. I think it was a DNF for me, but I loved Shoemaker. Kiss Carlo felt more like Shoemaker, so I think you'll enjoy it. I also think you will like Scribe of Siena. I look forward to your thoughts on Once and For All. I have read some mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it. Thank for visiting and I hope you have a great week as well.

    1. If that's the case, you will definitely like Scribe of Siena. Winawer did an awesome job bringing to life medieval Siena. Thanks for visiting, Evelina.

  7. The scribe of Siena sounds great- time travel and medieval Italy? I'm interested already. :) And Rosemarked and The Lake Effect as well- that last one because it's set on Lake Michigan I guess, which is in my neck of the woods. Looking forward to seeing how that's handled.

    The Yeti Files look cute. Hope you have a great week.

  9. I've been seeing Rosemarked around, but am definitely waiting on that one. I think it might be time to admit to myself that I just don't really like fantasy that much...even though I always love the covers. The Lake Effect looks fun. That one is on my list. Hope you love them all and are having a great week!
